My home course & where I got started playing
Pros: GRIP AND RIP!!!!! The +100 year old cottonwood trees will keep you in check but there's enough room to open up some huge bombs on the first few and holes and on 9. #3 is a bomb range followed by a tight tunnel-uphill shot #4(white) makes good use of the pond with the option of taking a risk and knocking off a stroke or playing it safe #5 starts out tight but with the right shot, opens up to a wide open basket. # 6 is the same except it leads to a wide tunnel. #7 is a short mid-range birdie but can seem closer than it is. #8 goes by the tank, can be difficult on white but the red tee is more open. Long but hard to navigate. #9 now closed the loop back to hole 1 with a semi-open fairway between the cottonwoods and ends in a really cool circle of cedar trees. The side facing the fairway is open so it's nice to have a good shot placement when teeing off.
Great maintenance on the park. Grass has always been cut, hardly any trash.
Bathrooms are by the south playground equipment(not sure if locked or not)
Like most of the courses around this area, you will probably have the course to yourself.
Grass tee pads are not worn down at all.
Cons: #3 white tee marker rotted off/hit by mower, is now leaned up against tree. #8(red)goes right over the playground/park shelter parking strip. Can be difficult with a lot of vehicles. Need to move the old course map & score card box closer to hole one(it might not even be in existence anymore)
New parking area has enough room for 2-3 vehicles. I think you can park parallel on the road without problems.
Other Thoughts: Heard from a guy, who I think is the course designer, that there are future plans to host fundraisers to get another 9 holes installed on the south part of the park and hopefully concrete tee pads. That would be cool.
Love the new setup but wish it included more of the creek as a hazard.
Mosquitoes can be very large and plentiful in the warmer months. LOTS of bug repellent.
If you launch one over the creek by accident there is a bridge back to the east of tee 6, otherwise the water isn't very deep and mostly clear. The pond however, is VERY deep and dark. God only knows whats at the bottom of that water hazard.
Sad, needs alot!

Pros: Good Distance shots
Not too open, not too wooded
Well kept grass
Really nice park for the kids
Cons: Where do I start...
Hole 1 white tee box missing
Hole 3, 6, 9 have little room at tee box
Hole 4 missing blue tee post
Hole 6 missing basket
Hole 7 and 8 missing all together, no tees no baskets!
Hole 9 missing blue tee.
Some of the tees had yellow 2X4s marking throwing lines, but not all of them.
Only one hole with elevation change.
Other Thoughts: All and all nice lay out, but too much missing. Be it vandals or wind, it was disappointing to not have at least baskets for 7 and 8.

Diamond in the Rough? FO SHO!
Pros: This is a gem of a course. The park is kept up very nice and there are some great holes. The longs tees are a real treat! There are lots of trees, a pond, and a creek. There is some slight elevation, but not much. Each grass tee pad has it's own sign and they do have grass. ;) Even though you could see pin on most of the holes from the tee, there are plenty of great obstacles to keep you thinking of multiple ways to play the holes. The scorecards and message board were really helpful as they have a map on them too. Navigating the course was fairly easy. The basket on #3 and blue tee on #4 are tough to find. You need to go in toward the woods just left of the pond.
Cons: There is about a 1/4-mile walk back to #1 from #9, but it isn't too bad since the park looks so nice. I did not see a restroom or too many trashcans, but it is so clean and has camping, so they must be there somewhere. I played in late Sept. and the mosquitoes were fierce!
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor is huge! I really enjoyed this course and wish it wasn't one of the furthest from my hotel on this trip. They have a WWII tank in the park and it would have been cool to put a basket on it or hanging from it somewhere. ;) If this course were near my home I would play it often. This was the diamond in the rough I was hoping to see on this trip.
